Artist: The Handsome Family
Album: Through The Trees
Appears On (Mixes): I'm Strapped To This Fucking Twin Bed: The Best Of The Handsome Family
Song Notes: It's another historical song—this one's about Robert Wadlow, the real Giant of Illinois, who did indeed die from a blister on his toe. He was something like 7 feet tall, and apparently a really nice guy. He died really young, sadly. They do take some liberties with his story—I don't know or think any of the stuff about his childhood is based in fact, but, hey, who cares? It's a beautiful song. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
